They cared enough to send the very best

My stash of Christmas e-cards for the year 2012
From Beng Valdellon and her son Jopop
Dear Babeth,

            Another season of friendship and good
             tidings is upon us! 

            May lightness and joy fill your heart at
            Christmas and throughout the New Year!

            With love,

From Pablo Tariman:
Happy holidays, Babeth!
Life is beautiful!
"Christmas Eve was a night of song that wrapped itself about you like a shawl. But it warmed more than your body. It warmed your heart... filled it, too, with a melody that would last forever. " - Bess Streeter Aldrich
Hi Baboobska! Nagpapadala pa rin ako ng Christmas card in all its glorious materiality, pero parang save-the-trees-and-inang-kalikasan mode ka ngayon, kaya e-card na lang ang para sa 'yo.

"Health, Peace, and sweet content be yours…"
~ Shakespeare

“Before the fields have finished,
Before the Christmas tree,

Wonder upon wonder

Will arrive to me…”
~ Emily Dickinson
It closes with:
"We are thankful for the internet, for Skype, for G-chat, for Facebook, and all the many ways in which we can continue to keep in touch with each other and with you. This holiday season, we commune with others and with ourselves, look for ways to replenish the body, the heart, and the spirit, and look forward with you to the new year. May your hearts and homes be filled with peace and the joy of lasting things."
